Finally, the rock are getting bigger. The last few days have produced strong striped action from the edges of the tangier sound to the shallows of Smith and Tangier. We focused on the shallows while others jigged the drop offs. There is still an obscene numbered throw back rock but some nice 20”+ keepers are showing up. We fished the ebb tide the last couple of days ( due to the strong winds from the north) and had 125+ fish with several keepers on both days. However, only today did we have a substantial number of keeper rock. The deeper fish on the edges of the tangier and Pocomoke sounds are being jigged up with crippled herrings , sting silvers, and jigfish. We have been throwing paddle tail baits like doa’s and seashads. The only difference from earlier is that we scaled up the size to help weed out the seemingly endless numbers of 19” fish. There have been bird action about , but yields mainly smaller fish. Lastly congrats to all the kids that assisted in deer population control last week. Stop in this weekend and check out new 2018 offerings from Penn, Fenwick, Berkeley, and Abu Garcia.
